Direct laser writing of 3D architectures of aligned carbon nanotubes.

Abstract

Direct laser writing through two-photon polymerization lithography is used to fabricate 3D nanostructures containing aligned single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). SWCNTs are aligned in the laser scanning directions while they are embedded in the structure. The alignment is induced by spatial confinement, volume shrinkage, and the optical gradient force. This method is expected to lead to new applications based on aligned SWCNTs.
